The Future is
The Easiest Path to Multi-Chain
Minimal Configuration Changes
No need to rewrite or reconfigure your smart contracts. They'll work right away.
Familiar Smart Contract Languages
Support for Solidity, Vyper, and anything that compiles to EVM bytecode.
Tools You Already Use
Use Ethereum-based tools you love like MetaMask, Remix, Hardhat, Waffle, and Truffle.
Built-in integrations for assets like DOT and ERC-20s, and infrastructure services like Chainlink and The Graph.
A Fully Ethereum-Compatible
Environment on Polkadot
Moonbeam is much more than just an EVM implementation: it’s a highly specialized Layer 1 chain that mirrors Ethereum’s Web3 RPC, accounts, keys, subscriptions, logs, and more. The Moonbeam platform extends the base Ethereum feature set with additional features such as on-chain governance, staking, and cross-chain integrations.
Solidity Smart Contracts
Re-deploy your existing smart contracts to a Polkadot environment without the need to refactor or rewrite.
H160 Accounts & ECDSA Signatures
Interact with Moonbeam using your existing Ethereum accounts and keys.
Subscribe to contract events and updates about on-chain transactions, balances, and more.
Complete Set of Web3 RPC Endpoints
Connect existing tools and dApp front-ends to Moonbeam like you would to Ethereum.
Grow Your Project with Multi-Chain
Moonbeam helps projects expand their reach to new users and markets with a multi-chain approach.
New Users and Use Cases
Address segments of your market that are out of reach on Ethereum due to gas prices.
Gain immediate access to resources on other blockchains, both in the Polkadot ecosystem and outside of it via Axelar and LayerZero.
Enjoy a “first mover” advantage by deploying early to Polkadot’s rapidly expanding parachain ecosystem.
Smart Contracts, Powered by the Glimmer Token
As a decentralized smart contract platform, Moonbeam requires a utility token to function. The network token, Glimmer (GLMR), is central to the design of the network and can’t be removed without sacrificing security and essential functionality.
Smart Contract Execution
Glimmer is used to pay for smart contract execution, playing the same role that ETH does on Ethereum.
All transaction fees are paid for with Glimmer.
Nominate collators using the Glimmer token and help support the liveness of the network.
Participate in on-chain Glimmer-weighted voting and governance.
